When Bradley Roby was arrested on charges of battery in July, it was unclear just how serious the issue was or how long he’d be forced to sit out.
But almost everything that has happened since then has helped to vindicate him, culminating Wednesday with news that his charges have been dismissed.
According to Bill Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch:
The misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby for his part in an altercation at an Indiana bar was conditionally dismissed today.
Roby was charged with misdemeanor battery after he was accused of striking a security guard in the chest. That was based on eyewitness accounts. But video evidence seen by the second police officer on the scene and included in a supplemental report showed that Roby was pushed three times and only “lunged” at a security guard.
The video in question helped reduce Roby’s charges from felony battery to a misdemeanor last week, but now appear to have cleared his name in full.
